    I Love Straws

    I love straws, especially chewing on them. .__. My grandfather used to say to me, "Real men don't use straws." But I didn't care. I hate when you don't have a straw, and get a load of ice cubes in your mouth. I'll often take my straw and just kind of gnaw on it for a while.

    Chewing Chewing All Day Long

    So much, I actually have to get a new one because the one I've been chewing on is unsuckable now. I just enjoy chewing on them. I'll still be chewing a good 20 minutes after I've finished my drink.

    Yeah I Do

    I chew my straw without even realizing it.  When my bf and I go to the movies together, we share a large cherry coke.  I have to consciously try not to chew the straw cuz... well... he doesn't like drinking from my chewed up straw.  He thinks it is kinda gross...

    LOL

    I use mine as a dental pick, slyly when no ones looking! When I go to KFC I always end up with food in my teeth and it annoys me how places don't have dental picks for when you finish your food, so I use my straw! I do tend to use it too much and sometimes I make my gums bleed...

    Quite Often

    without even realizing it, i'll give up on actually drinking and submit to chewing my straw until the top of it is bent and ready to crack. i kinda like that feeling of biting the straw between my teeth. it's a good way to release stress!

    Done It For Years

    It's just a habit. I don't know why I do it. Sometimes I don't even know I'm doing it until I look at the straw or people are like "why are you chewing on your straw?"

    YES I Do

    Not only do I chew on my straw but I have a gap in my back teeth and I push the straw back and forth between it similar to flossing. I know it is gross and I only do it when I am all alone.

    Force Of Habit....

    I've only been chewing my straws since I was 11. I used it as a stress habit because I had started smoking and had to hide it from my parents. Chewing on straws was an easy way to hide it. Then the guy I was dating started thinking it was cute instead of weird so he gave me over...

    Square

     I like to chew the straw so it flattens, then chew the other way so that the straw turns into a square shape. I don't know why, but I do it all the time.

    Oh I Try Not To, Believe Me...

    Oh I try not to, believe me. I try and try and try not to. But it's a habit, an addiction. I must chew that straw! I do it sub-conciously, inadvertantly, absently. I don't want to, but I have no choice. Isn't there a hotline for this sort of thing? :p

    Chew Chew Chew

    I chew on my straw more so absentmindedly. I don't even notice it. Sometimes I'd take a straw from one of those juice boxes and start chewing. I just need it because usually I don't have any gum and I always need to occupy my mouth without having to talk
